Thought for the month

“There is nothing noble in being superior to some other man. The true nobility is in being superior to your previous self.” Probably W.L. Sheldon, US lecturer on ethics (1858 – 1907) rather than Ernest Hemingway.

Latest Barbie Phone?

It is not a joke. Takashi Minato at the Advanced Telecommunications Research Institute International (with input from mobile telephone operator NTT DOCoMo) has come up with a human-shaped mobile phone that has a skin-like outer layer that apparently allows you to feel closer to the person on the other end of the phone. I love technological progress.
